My kind of exhibit!

NY Museum Stages First ‘Scent’ Exhibit

Chandler Burr calls his works ‘olfactory art,’ and says he’s not a freak—he just uses his nose more often and more carefully than the rest of us. Blake Gopnik reports.

What a fantastic idea! The very thought stirs my scent loving soul… I wish I was closer so I could attend. Although if I were making real wishes I would wish to share a bottle of red wine with Chandler Burr and talk scent for an afternoon.

I personally disagree with his idea that “a thing must be artificial; it is impossible to create art entirely with nature”—but I understand the point he is making.

I love all kinds of fragrance; traditional as well as all natural.

There is room in my world and my shop for both!
What fragrances move your soul?

For me this fall I am continuing my love affair with Cinnamon.

Belladonna…a *new* Eden’s Alchemy fragrance!

Belladonna-Our *NEW* Fragrance!

What’s it smell like???

Belladonna:an intoxicating, sensual fragrance. The color of mystery, the texture of luxe, this very sexy, seductive fragrance has the sweet scent of sultry, smouldering, feminine sophistication. Exotic. Sensual. Luxurious!

With notes of Saffron, Masala Spices, Clove, Nutmeg, Pimento Berries, White Pepper, Mediterranean Broom Flower, Patchouli, Crimson Red Marechal Rose, Ethiopian Guggal Incense, Wengue Wood, Bois de Miel.

Belladonna, n.: In Italian a beautiful lady; in English a deadly poison. A striking example of the essential identity of the two tongues.

The process of Creativity.

Do you dream in color?  Have you ever dreamed with fragrance?  Sometimes I do…

This fragrance has haunted me since the first time I smelled it in a dream…this is the closest perfume reproduction I can make.  It is not exact, but very close. I love this one so much I felt she deserved her own blog entry…

I wanted to share a little bit of my insane process of creating with you in hopes that you will love, or at least better understand the end result.

I keep little blotter papers near me so I can scratch out ideas and inspirations as they strike-I have been known to pull over when driving to record ideas, jolt upright out of sleep to scratch them down,  and sometimes they just quietly sneak up and tap me on the shoulder.  Either way I hope this helps you understand the crazy that creates my fragrances….

Bella Notte Fragrance note scribbles

A few weeks ago during a rainstorm I woke up at 2 am in the middle of a haunting dream about a girl with a velvet dress (I think I am going to write a book about her someday) reading an old leather book, cemeteries, angels, roses, mist, leather,  and I could literally smell her perfume.

I decided to re-create her Perfume and I have decided to call it Bella Notte (Italian for Beautiful Night)

Bella Notte Perfume: Rich Dark & Warm, Intense, Sensual and Feminine…it begins like a dream with wistful  Rose Absolute & Grey Amber, mid notes of Smokey Cedar  grounded with Dark Sweet Benzoin & Vanilla, hints of Wild Lavender, ancient Woods and Earth, infused with burnt Caramel Bitters.

Inspired by old roses on a lovers grave, tattered time worn velvet, lost love, longing and heartbreak, misty full moons, wild gardens and herbs growing irreverently, remembrance of things past…

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think….❥

Love, Laughter & Candlelight!
